Afghanistan: A Hard Fight

As President Obama announced this week that the U.S is sending 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan, we spoke with reporter Jason Motlagh, who has just returned from spending two months with U.S troops in several troubled Afghan provinces along the Pakistan border.

Motlagh has been traveling to Afghanistan for the past three years, spending time on the streets of Kabul, in refugee camps and most recently embedded with troops. With Taliban gains and civilian and military casualties on the rise, he shares dramatic photographs and video and calls what he witnessed there "a hard fight."

Jason Motlagh is a freelance journalist based in South Asia, where he has been reporting on conflicts throughout the region. His reporting and photographs have appeared in The Christian Science Monitor, The Washington Times, U.S. News and World Report, The Washington Post and The Economist. He receives support for his work from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
